Access panel in frount, 2 screws to take out. if you washer is not spinning but washes try the tension pulley is not tight enough. to cured problem of not spinning if tension is not tight. check if the plastic pulley is turning if not get it loose and put greases on it. there should be a metal sleeve fasten in the pulley. but if it is rusted to the other shaft it spins on you will never know it was to be fasten in the plastic pulley. i broke them lose and greased tighten the spring and it should work good. time to time might want to grease it.
for the other person if you machine sounds like it is winding to go in to outer space, it most likely the bearings. they are 100 each and there are 2 of them. plus seals. i used mine for a year before i locked up, if you like the performances of that machine get it fixed. the $1200 front loader i just bought went back and the old AMANA is getting fixed.

There should be either an access panel at the rear or you could gain access from underneath. (switch off the unit b4 removing any panels though).

Could be a belt or motor/brushes. or the pump is not getting the water out quick enough.
